    changing default description

    When you type a URL in facebook's post dialogue, an image, followed by page name and short description appears. How to change the default image and description?

     

    e.g, My theme was something realated to teaching, so the description reads "Our programs are offered on a two-year, full-time basis. We continually audit our curriculum to ensure we always provide industry-standard knowledge.". Also the image is of a beach, though it now appears nowhere in my actual site.

     

    Wanted to post a screenshot, but a 500kb file takes forever to upload. 😕 Please help.

    Thank you. GoDaddy technical support has taken care of my issue. The tool you linked to was also very helpful.

     

    Really appreciate your reply.

    it seems your link does not work anymore, can you help here? 

     

    I am wanting to put a page on my godaddy website into my facebook and when I click on the f on the left on my godaddy page, my page and a short description of me pops up for my facebook post.  I want to edit that short description but can't figure out where it came from.  Thanks.

    Worked for me as well thank you so much for the tip! I was really frustrated but this fixed my problem in less that 3 minutes. Awesome !!
